Mazda is wisely leaving well enough alone for the most part with its 2017 CX-3. The 18-inch wheels from the Grand Touring model are now standard on the Touring, and Mazda has reduced the price of the i-Activsense safety package by $750.
Mazda CX-3 is all-new for 2016, utilizing all of Mazda’s latest Skyactiv technology.
About Mazda CX-3
The Mazda CX-3 immediately established itself as the most fun-to-drive vehicle in the subcompact-SUV market when it was introduced last year, and that's going to remain the same story for the 2017 CX-3 as well. That's fine with us. While it's true that the CX-3 comes up short in cargo and rear-seat space compared to vehicles like the Kia Soul, Honda HR-V and Jeep Renegade, it blows them all away when it comes to driving satisfaction. About the only other subcompact SUV that comes close is the Fiat 500X, but with the Mazda, you get all the driving pleasure, even better styling, and in a package with a much more comfortable around-town ride.
